Stayed for a weekend, lovely hotel. Rooms are nice and beds are very comfortable. Vast majority of staff seem to be from local area so definitely an old fashioned Irish welcome feel to the whole place and I found staff generally very chatty and friendly. The food in both the bar and restaurant I thought was excellent and one of... More

Came over for a week of hunting with three friends. Although the hotel lacks any kind of character or charm, it was a warm welcome after some very long and wet days hunting with some of the brilliant local hunts. Beds were very comfortable, staff was friendly and meals were good! Looking forward to our next visit.
